Bullying: A Legitimate Workplace Issue

Bullying can be seen and experienced in many ways. For the most part, it’s any conduct that is unwelcome, hostile, or frightful. It can be physical, mental, or verbal.

Bullying is usually associated with school children and teens. But these days, even adults experience it. It is actually prevalent in some offices.

The issue of workplace bullying is not limited to a single type of behavior. It includes individual attacks, for example, shouting, gossiping, disengagement, micromanagement and toxic workload.

Usually, bullying is more of a personal attack on a certain individual and is normally unrelated to the job or work environment itself.

According to researchers, workplace bullying is on the rise. And this is because of a lot of factors. It could be due to a toxic work environment that tolerates this kind of behavior. It could also be due to unhealthy competition. Personality factors could also be in play.

If you are a target of workplace bullying or corporate bullying, then your career will be affected. Your bully’s actions will cause a lot of problems for you. For example, you could miss out on promotions because your manager refuses to provide training and feedback. Here’s another example. Let’s say you have a colleague who constantly takes credit for your work. You will not get the recognition that you deserve if this persists. If you are always being intimidated by a workplace bully, then you might feel reluctant to voice out your opinions. People who are non-confrontational might have a more difficult time dealing with workplace bullies. However, confrontation is not always needed to address this issue.
